Hello.. I am putting together an AMD Thunderbird 1.1/1.2 system with the adbit KT7-RAID motherboard.

I found companies on Price Watch selling AMD CPU for half ($250)of what I see it go for elsewhere($425).

They are not advertised as OEM version with 30 day warranty but with a full 3 year warranty.

Are these guys for real?? Am I missing something? Normally I see the processors going for about 400+ dollars.

Thanks

I don't think any of the chips you see on there will be a full AMD 3 year warranty. Most are OEM 15 or 30 day warranties. This was a listing on Pricewatch that offered an OEM witha 1 year warranty, which I consider pretty good. <A HREF="http://www.lynncomp.com/shop3/" target="_new">http://www.lynncomp.com/shop3/&lt;/A>

You usually have to look at the seller's website and I even take a step further and usually give them a call just to make sure. Just make sure you're getting what you're paying for.

Good point HARM, however, I am not a pure gamer. I plan on doing more processor intensive tasks as well as play Quake 3.
Is the refresh rate of the monitor versus pure frames per second the demon you are concerned about HARM??

NO, he said beware of the Slot A Thunderbird. That means make sure you get the Socket A Thunderbird.
